Remember Barney Frank
Yes, the Barney Frank that didn't want regulation or oversight of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. "The federal government doesn't bail them out." See him saying it there.
Now they want MORE bailout money. Mostly because of Barney and his Senate pal, Chris Dodd. Was it all BUsh's fault? Oh, it was his Treasury secretary pushing for oversight in the mortgages and mortgage backed securities. Funny how things get reported.
Just an observation.
